Ever since I discovered Aerandria some years ago, June has been my favourite month. For those old-timers, and those new, this is because Aerandria celebrates its anniversary on the 10th June – and has traditionally marked the occasion with some special releases. This year marks Aerandria’s 7th birthday – and I’d like to visit a little of AE’s history. Here are some old posts that mark some of what has gone on in the past 7 years.
The first ever release on 10th June 2007 was chapter 1 of Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume (blimey, that feels ages ago!) AE’s very first release!
And who here remembers the site crashing from that fantastically popular release, Midnight Secretary? If you haven’t read it, it was licensed by Viz in 2013, but very much worth reading.
There was the poll which established that Lacaille is in fact a cuddly bear, and not a pirate penguin as sometime believed: Lacaille’s claws – although in the five years since that post, it is possible that she has simply morphed into a QC monster
Still frequently mentioned in IRC is the concept of Laca-time, first described by Adrift here: Laca Time (It is rather scary seeing a cranky Lacaille, awake too early in the morning – and the best time to prank her!)
So while it has been years since the last Lacaille Appreciation Week, I’d like to say thank you on behalf of all fans of Aerandria, not just to Lacaille, but to all of the staff members of Aerandria, past and present, who have made the past 7 years possible. Please join the team with whatever skills you can offer – and enjoy the releases below!
